2014 Advent Paintings

STAR OF WONDER, Virginia Wieringa, Acrylic 2014

STAR OF WONDER 2, Virginia Wieringa, Acrylic 2014

Emerging Star 2, Virginia Wieringa, Acrylic 2014

Emerging Star 3, Virginia Wieringa, Acrylic 2014

This series began in 1997 after an Advent sermon. These paintings were started last December of 2013. I have two Advent shows scheduled in churches in December 2014 and wanted to make sure these would be finished. Now on to other things...

I've 'watermarked' the image to prevent people just taking them and using them since they are my intellectual property. If you would like to pay and use a piece by permission, contact me at and I can send you a high res JPEG without the writing.

MORNING SAIL Virginia Wieringa, Mixed media 2014

I just delivered this summery painted tissue collage to Fernwood 1891 in Fennville. Maybe someone will buy it as a summer momento!

Celestial Timing #5

This piece has been coming across my table for more than a year. It gets changed a little every time. There's something I really like about it, and something that's really bugged me about it. It's called 'Celestial Timing #5' and I think it might be done.

Faraway Farm

Faraway Farm
This 18" x 36" Acrylic was done as a gift for the 50th anniversary of the people who live here. I enjoyed a tour of the horse ranch as I took photos for reference. Lovely people in a  lovely place. Congratulations!

(Oh, my favorite part is the horse along the left fence.)
